PR: Catch a Manga Triple Threat on February 3rd With The New YU-GI-OH! 3-in-1 Omnibus!

VIZ MEDIA DELIVERS A MANGA TRIPLE THREAT WITH THE LAUNCH OF YU-GI-OH!
3-IN-1 OMNIBUS SERIES

Catch 3 Complete Volumes Of Creator Kazuki Takahashi’s Original Bestselling Fantasy Action Manga Series In New Omnibus Format

San Francisco, CA, January 13, 2015 – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, triples its dueling power as it announces the launch of Kazuki Takahashi’s YU-GI-OH! manga series in a new 3-in-1 omnibus on February 3rd.

Published under the Shonen Jump imprint, YU-GI-OH! 3-in-1, Vol. 1 is rated ‘T’ for Teens and will carry an MSRP of $14.99 U.S. / $16.99 CAN. It is the latest title to join VIZ Media’s extensive roster of 3-in-1 omnibus releases for some of manga’s greatest series. Future YU-GI-OH! 3-in-1 editions will cover the entire 38-volume series and will be published quarterly for a total of 13 volumes.

Tenth-grader Yugi always had his head in some game – until he solved the Millennium Puzzle, an Egyptian artifact containing the spirit of a master gambler from the age of the pharaohs! Possessed by the puzzle, Yugi becomes Yu-Gi-Oh, the King of Games, and challenges evildoers to the Shadow Games…weird games with high stakes and high risks!

The games begin in the opening YU-GI-OH! omnibus volume! Meet Seto Kaiba, master of the world’s most dangerous collectible card game. When Kaiba discovers that Yugi’s grandfather owns the incredibly rare “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” card, he will stop at nothing to get it…even if he has to duel with Yugi’s dark alter ego Yu-Gi-Oh! Then, out of the sands of Egypt, the mystic Shadi has come to test Yugi’s powers, which will give Yugi his greatest challenge yet. If he loses, his best friends will die!
